Parental Leave is the New Sexy
I’m a fan of women’s leadership and of the fact that women look at the world in a completely different way and consequently create other products. Parently is just an example of such a project, it gives me goosebumps to see how cool the solution covers the pain point. And not just for women, in general people of any gender who have gone on parental leave. The challenges that this period brings are universal.
During our meeting they shared quotes from interviews with TA, and there was so much pain, fear, and social pressure it made me feel bad. Although I have no prospect of getting pregnant. There’s a reason why millennials are getting pets more and more often, and having children less and less often. After all, getting a dog from a shelter is a socially approved action that only strengthens your bond with your environment. Plus, having a dog helps create a lot of good content. And having a baby and going on parental leave in people’s eyes = “to dumb down”, “lose your job”, “lose your sexuality” etc.
The project is now going international, please help the founders with cusdev in European countries, anyone who can relate to this topic.
